The heart and soul of the owner is embedded in this retreat. Herlinda has made peaceful, easy feeling a reality ½ hour from Honolulu. You enjoy total isolation and have a best friend next door. If you are looking to unwind, you have found the place. Brud We have been fortunate to stay at many “luxury” resorts in our life,... More

Brud & Debbie, you are so fun that you're lucky you get to be around yourselves all the time. LOL! Such sweet people! I'll never forget enjoying the full chorus of our resident song birds as they "got ready for bed" (or branch?) in a nearby tree. How delightful! I'm so grateful that in the course of providing a peaceful... More

Well, imagine being able to have all the perks of going to Hawaii (i.e., the beaches, the sun, the big city <Honolulu> when you want it, the country <North Shore or Makaha> when you want it, the tourist stuff <when you want it>, and the ability to be local <when you want it>)...

We're so happy you had a great stay! We offer what we ourselves value when we travel: simple, clean, and thoughtful accommodations in a peaceful setting, well-managed by a friendly (but unobtrusive) host.

My husband and I spent 11 nights at Hale Nalo while visiting relatives who live in Kailua. Herlinda was a wonderful host.

Looking for a quiet home within one block of one of the most beautiful and swimmable beaches on Oahu? This is the place.

Overall Impression Among the favorable and, perhaps, most suitable impressions that we would like to create for this review of Hale Nalo is waking up to the soft calls of the ubiquitous Zebra Doves, which exemplifies the peacefulness of the place.

Every December my partner and I relax in Hawaii. Two years ago we discovered Hale Nalo. We are making this our holiday staple.

If you stay here, you will definitely want to return. And upon your return, Herlinda will give you a big hug and say "welcome home," and you will be happy.

This home is in a relaxing area away from the tourist areas-what we wanted-and close to the beach. It is nicely appointed, with attractive furnishings. It is also centrally located, so we were able to make day trips to anywhere on the island.

Hale Nalo is a well-maintained beachside property offering three self-catering vacation rental studios: two 400sf Garden Suites, and the luxurious 900sf ZEN Treehouse. Built in 2008, this place was created as a place of quiet retreat for adult travelers wishing to enjoy our island home (we are a kid-free environment). The Garden Suites are both fully-independent studios with 14-foot high vaulted ceilings, each with their own kitchenette and over-sized private bathroom. Our Garden Suites are both corner units, situated literally in a tropical garden, shaded by the canopy of old growth guava and ulu trees. For those wanting more privacy, space and luxury, we recommend the ZEN Treehouse: a sublime second-level studio apartment with large east-west facing decks. All guests enjoy free off-street parking and high-speed internet (wifi).
